Telerik Academy is creating a society of life-long learners. It teaches a mindset that is not only of great help when solving complex problems, but also serves as a wonderful motivator to constantly be hunting for and adopting new skills and information.

The time and effort I put into Telerik Academy are among my best investments so far. There is no other tech-ed organization in Bulgaria like the Academy. These are not only my words. I know a lot of expats who came back to Bulgaria and people who quit their jobs or put their university studies on hold to be able to fully dedicate themselves to Telerik Academy.

Some of my best junior software engineers at Uber and Skyscanner come from Telerik Academy. It is always a pleasure to work with their alumni!

Telerik Academy changed my life. At the age of 20, I was already independent and working my dream job! Without the knowledge and experience I gained at Telerik Academy, I wouldn’t have had such a flying start.

After 10 years of scrutinizing and perfecting its craft it’s no wonder Telerik Academy is the leader in technical education. We are honored to have 15 alumni at Tick42 who are continuously getting unsolicited praise from our clients, and we’ll most definitely continue partnering closely with Telerik Academy.

From day one at Telerik Academy Alpha I knew I’ve had made the right choice. The trainers are 100% dedicated to providing students with the best possible education and preparing them to meet and exceed the expectations of their future employers.

    What we’re up to


    “Companies were calling me for interviews. The job offer came one week after I graduated from Telerik Academy”

    Bogomil Valev graduated from Telerik Academy Alpha with JavaScript in June 2020, the summer of the most unusual and controversial year in modern history. Then the phone started ringing.


    “Telerik Academy’s Digital Marketing program helped me gain confidence and made me more valuable to my team“

    Milena always strives to stay ahead of the digital marketing curve. With nearly 8 years of experience in brand management, marketing, and digital communications, she needed a program to help her level up her skills. And that is exactly what she did with Telerik Academy Upskill Digital Marketing.


    Telerik Academy’s 2020: The Different Year

    In a year like never before, we look back at some of our key moments from 2020. It challenged all of us as individuals and served up one too many plot twists, but at least one thing is for sure - change is the new normal. And just like you, we kept adapting and growing to answer your needs. Here’s what happened in the past 12 months.

    Behind every success there’s a great story.
    Here’s ours.


    For over a decade we’ve touched the lives of 140,000+ kids and professionals in Bulgaria. Many of them have made their first steps in programming and launched a successful career in IT thanks to Telerik Academy. Our graduates power the teams of hundreds of organizations, big and small, local and global. We are a partner to all – students and companies. Their success is our success. Simple as that.
